I Scream for Ice Cream Jim Trautman "I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream", is based on a historical fact, the creation of the chocolate ice cream bar. Also a second song: "0h my! Eskimo Pie" with words and music by Walt Wimbrow. In 1919 in Onawa, Iowa, a candy store owner Christian Nelson saw a customer could not makeup his mind between ice cream and a chocolate bar . When told to purchase both, the boy stated that he only had money for one. The idea was born to mate ice cream and chocolate. The ice cream that was born that day was called: "I - Scream Bar" and the first 500 hundred were taken to the Onawa Fireman's Tournament and quickly sold out. Christian Nelson had the product patented, but could not figure out a way to make and sell large numbers of the bar. He met an ice cream supervisor by the name of Russell Stover - who felt the name should be changed to "Eskimo Pie" which would have a better marketable brand name to advertise to the public. A third man entered the picture R.J. Reynolds who owned the US Foil Company. "Eskimo Pies" were now wrapped in a foil wrapper. An individual could hold the chocolate covered ice cream with the foil wrapper. In one day in 1921, in Omaha, Nebraska, one quarter million "Eskimo Pies" were sold. The original bar weighed 1 1/2 ounces. .
Collecting Those Old 78s Lorne Van Sinclair
For 50 years the 10 inch 78 RPM disc was the standard format for records in North America and Europe. In 1901 the Berliner flat disc beat out the Edison cylinder to become as the medium by which popular songs were distributed to the masses. It ruled supreme until 1948 when the 45 and LP were introduced, but it took 10 more years before it was completely phased out. It’s safe to say the 78 disc recorded, and in fact is largely responsible for, one of the most fascinating periods in American popular music.

The History of Coca-Cola Helen Nash
The product that has given the world its best-known taste and led to a memorabilia craze was born in Atlanta, Georgia, on May 8, 1886. Dr. John Stith Pemberton, a local pharmacist, produced the syrup for Coca Cola® and carried a jug of the new product down the street to Jacobs' Pharmacy, where it was placed on sale for 5 cents a glass at the soda fountain. Carbonated water was added to produce a drink that was at once "Delicious and Refreshing," a theme that continues to echo today wherever Coca Cola is enjoyed...
Scottish Single Malts Reid Pickering
Those who collect and those who have collections thrust upon them: A journey into Scottish single malts.
I'm a beer drinker. I've been drinking it for 25 years. So…how did I end up with an incredible collection of 2000 plus bottles of rare single malt whisky? The year was 2008 and I had been managing a great spot in the heart of Toronto called the Rebel House but I was becoming restless and decided it was time for a change. The thing was, I had no idea what I should do or even what I could do. After all, I had spent the last 20 years working in the service industry and playing in rock bands. I didn’t have much experience in anything else. Then I received a phone call.
“I’m having lunch at a place you might know,” she said. “Where?” “The Feathers.” “Really?” “Yup.” My wife, Sarah, had also been in the service industry for many years but with the birth of our daughter had made a career change. She was now marketing real estate in service based businesses such as restaurants and bars. The Feathers is a popular pub on Kingston Rd in the Beaches area of Toronto.
Collecting Antique Fishing Tackle Jim Greenway Over the past few decades, the collecting of fishing tackle has grown in popularity. Years ago, I could obtain a tackle box full of lures and bobbers at an auction with a bid of $20.00 to $30.00. A similar box today will sometimes cost me considerably more, especially if there is a certain bait sitting in one of the trays and definitely more if there are a couple of other collectors in the room. Back in the early 80s I would look at the people I was bidding against and we would have a lot in common: we would be about the same age and have similar interests such as cottages, boating, and fishing. This is not always true today as we have lots of young people collecting tackle; it is not just a hobby for the 50 and over club.
